Everything went very smoothly at both events, and John performed wonderfully in both settings. He was easy to work with and even sent samples of the works he would perform to us for review beforehand. We really couldn’t have been more pleased. He honored every part of our contract and many of our guests were extremely impressed with his guitar skills, asking for his contact information after the events. Give him a call and check out what he has to offer. You won’t be disappointed.”

If a song isn’t in his current repertoire – don’t sweat it, he’ll learn it in a matter of days – nay, hours. John was prompt, professional, and responded to emails in a timely manner.”

“John is as good as it gets – he played his collection of songs beautifully and did exactly as we’d requested. On top of that – he worked up renditions of several songs that I’d asked for – without any problem and performed them in a way that made them sound better than the originals. Just the best! The number of folks who commented on your exquisite guitar playing was…..everyone there! I really appreciated you playing the version of Kiss a Girl along with each of the other pieces! Just awesome. So great!”
